Oven buying guide



Quick Guide


How much space do you have?

You need at least 60cm width and depth for your oven. But, depending on how much height you have available, you can choose from a compact, single or double oven. Mix and match to give yourself lots of cooking options.

45 cm tall – compact ovens
60 cm tall - standard ovens
72-80cm tall – large capacity ovens

#EASYTIP: A built-in oven with a swing door allows you to stand closer, making it easier to move things in and out in a small gallery kitchen.


Often cooking for a crowd?

Oven capacity is measured in litres – the bigger the feast, the more litres you’ll need.

70+ litres - Best for big households of four or more, big eaters, or both
40 - 70 litres - Should satisfy three to four hungry bellies just fine
35 - 40 litres - Enough to cook up a storm for one to two people

#EASYTIP: Choose an oven with removable shelves for greater cooking freedom


What kinds of cooking do you like?

Steaming - Steam in your very own steam oven for tastier flavours and textures you can't wait to sink your teeth into.
Grilling – An oven with a separate grill gives you more space to play with - great for larger meals.
Roasting – It’s easy to roast in conventional and fan ovens but a steam oven will give you the best results (and that’s not rocket science either…).
Baking – A fan oven will give you the edge in any bake-off by helping you bake more evenly.
All kinds – A multi-function oven can do all of the above, and steam programmes can deliver awesome tastes and textures.


Look out for features that make cleaning your oven quick and easy, so you have more time for the things you enjoy in life:

Self-cleaning ovens – Pyrolytic ovens will incinerate any dirt left in your oven, leaving an easy-to-wipe-away ash, with no cleaning products required.
Catalytic liners – Models with catalytic liners absorb grease and fat splashes, and are easily replaceable after multiple uses.

#EASYTIP: Anti-fingerprint finishes not only look great but require less cleaning too.


#EasyTip - Upside Down Burger

Top tip for a good burger? Flip it! The top bun can take more weight and sauce. So it's easier to eat.
